Thailand has charged nine people over anti-government protests that saw former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra removed. Thailand's attorney-general plans to file charges against 34 others who did not show up in court.
Around 400 protesters have rallied in the Thai capital to call on the government to restore democracy and hold elections. The junta still hasn't fulfilled its pledge to organize polls after seizing power four years ago.
